3 products to protect your locks this season.
While we may slather our skins with sun block in summer, our hair is often left unprotected. Sun, seawater and sweat, all by-products of summer, can leave your locks looking less than luster.
But fear not as there are ways to protect your hair from the elements. UV-blockers will not only prevent your colored or natural hair from fading, but they’ll nourish and protect you hair all day.
Barex Sun Essential Hair & Body Shampoo - $23
Keep ahead of sun damage by regularly washing your hair with a UV-protecting shampoo. Barex Sun Essential Hair & Body Shampoo is a delicate cleansing hair shampoo and a body wash. This combined product nourishes the hair on your body too! The shampoo washes away traces of chlorine, salt, sand and sunscreens and leaves hair hydrated. It contains pro-Vitamin B5, Carotene and Meadow Foam Oil and helps fight color oxidation.
Bumble and bumble Color Minded UV Protective Styling Balm – $28
If you’ve washed your hair the night before, this Protective Styling Balm is the go-to product. While helping to minimize fading effects, it can also be used before a blow-dry, creating additional volume in your hair. Use a round brush for an extra lift or a flat iron for sleekness. The product’s heat and humidity protection and UV filters fight the effects of heat styling and sun for all hair types, colored or not, making it useful year-round.
